I’ve been drooling over the Signing Time videos since I first learned about them, but I never managed to squeeze them into my budget. I’ve always been interested in learning ASL (American Sign Language) and while I’ve learned many signs from books and the internet, I was never able to take a class and actually learn the language, with its unique grammar and syntax.
So when I had the opportunity to review one of Signing Time’s digital videos with their new On Demand system, I was really excited!
All I had to do was register and download their video player and the video I wanted. It took a few minutes to get the movie, but I also had other things running on my computer that probably slowed down the download. I opened up their BrainPlayer video player and selected the video to play. Perfect!
I chose the Sing and Sign video. It’s a collection of songs from different Signing Time videos, and it’s put together in a very user-friendly way. I can choose to play “Sing and Sign plus Learn to Sign”, “Sing and Sign Only”, “Songs”, plus “Special Features.” You can also turn closed captioning on or off.
The movie plays very smoothly since it’s not streaming from an online source, and I can download the player onto different computers or devices to watch the videos on. Also, since the videos are stored on your computer, you don’t have to be online to watch them. Signing Time On Demand claims that with the video player technology they use, even older computers will be able to run the videos smoothly.
